Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • My thyroid medication was changed to Synthroid approximately 9 months ago. My last blood test show high sugar, high serum sodium and high carbon dioxide. I had used leventhroid for about 15 years previously. could this be caused by the synthroid.


  • From this study (9 months ago):

  • Steady decline for four years, but extreme decline over two months leading me in to hospital


  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • So many of the BP meds I have been placed on seem to elevate y=my blood sugars, cause arrythmias and/or aren't effective. I am glucose intolerant with a HGB A1C of around 6.5. (with or without metformin - stays the same)
